The well at Temple is 77 feet deep: 60 to the water, & seventeen afterwards. My well measures only 63 feet to the bottom.
Goleigh well to the water is 55 1/2 yrds /166 feet; to the bottom 57 1/2 yrds / 172 1/2 feet; Heards well to the water is 70 2/3 yrds / 212 feet; to the bottom 83 1/3 yrds / 250 feet.
A stone was 4 1/2 seconds falling to the bottom of Heards well; & 4 seconds to the water of Goleigh. The wells were measured accurately by the Revd. Edumund White on the 25th of August 1792, in the midst of a very wet summer. Deep, & tremendous as is the well at Heards, John Gillman, an Ideot, fell to the bottom of it twice in one morning; & was taken out alive, & survived the strange accident many years. Only Goleigh & Heards wells were measured by Mr E. White.
